BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tap It Brewing Co.
California, United States
tapitbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This first wort-hopped IPA has a harmonious explosion of hop flavor and aroma. A hazy head leads drinkers toward a beer rich in citrus and earthy flavors with a smooth and rich finish. The complex floral and citrusy tones from the Citra and Simcoe hops welcome you, while two more aromatic varietals mate perfectly with specialty malts for an unmatched aroma.

Impressive IPA from halfway between SF and LA! Excellent balance of bitter hops and citrus lightness without being too heavy or harsh. Incredibly smooth and a nice finish. Pours a golden auburn with minimal head. A great beer to make a night out of with a few glasses worth!

Fresh keg on tap at Harry's Hofbrau. Brilliantly clear golden amber with a clingy white head. Big bright citrus hop nose with some bready malt buried beneath. Floral aromas meet pineapple and grapefruit. Gentle bready malts hit the tongue first, followed by floral hop notes, grapefruit, pineapple. Nice medium-light body with gentle bitterness in the finish. This is quite good. Maybe not quite world class, but very well balanced and drinkable with some great flavors.

This has good bitterness. Lately my fave has been Sam Adams Rouser double IPA, but this is close to as good.

Maybe I'm a sucker for all the citrus notes and flavors of this beer but I think it's a delicious balance of the power you want and expect from an American ipa and a lighter crisp floral bouquet beer that a lesser ipa can't provide. Fully endorse it. A lot of alcohol but I don't find it gratuitous at all.

I tried this at an event during a recent trip to SLO. It poured a rich amber color with lots of carbonation and a thick head. The smell was a strong citrusy/fruity/hoppy aroma with just a light malt and caramel smell. The mouth feel was rich and full with a malty caramel start and a citrusy hop finish with just a light bitterness. This is a nice crisp refreshing IPA. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to get my hands on some more!
